An opportunity has arisen for an Administration Support Officer to join our team based in Eastbourne working across Children’s Services and Adult Social Care.

This role will be to provide administrative support to the Recruitment Team supporting us with a range of key tasks including Social Work selection events, meetings and recruitment events.  You will need to be a great communicator with the skills to liaise with a variety of professionals and other partner organisations. 

We need an individual with strong Microsoft Office skills and a passion for delivering excellent customer service to a wide range of people.  This is a busy and often autonomous role meaning you will need to be highly organised, able to prioritise and work proactively.

Office hours will vary and a flexible approach to this is desired alongside the ability to meet the travelling requirements of the post.

If you are motivated by work which is meaningful and results in a direct positive contribution to your community, by providing a better service to the people of East Sussex, then come and work with us.

In return for your commitment, we offer ongoing training and development opportunities, along with regular supervision and support within a friendly team.

Relationships are the key to best practice

At ESCC our Connected Practice model creates change through meaningful and helpful relationships with children and families – an approach which focusses on enabling young people to lead safe, stable and fulfilling lives at home with their families.

Our practitioners draw on their own resources to develop effective relationships with vulnerable families and children. By working intensively, and using structured interventions, our social workers help families to solve problems themselves ensuring that children are safer and better nurtured.

Progress your learning and training

At East Sussex we know that our staff are individuals with their own career goals.  So we have created a clear career development pathway, known as Progress, which maps out all the different options and opportunities for enriching and developing individual careers. It enables staff to build on existing skills and develop new knowledge and it provides clarity around the requirements for pay and progression, social work registration and further accreditation

A wide range of benefits
In addition to a highly-competitive salary, we offer a wide range of benefits, including:
•    Relocation costs of up to £8,000, if you are making a move of more than 20 miles
•    Payment of your HCPC registration fees

For all the details, take a look at our full range of benefits:  https://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/jobs/social-work-with-children/benefits-of-working-here/
